Roy was extremely knowledgeable and great with our kids ranging from 5 - 17. Great spotting scope and his iPad came in handy for additional examples of wildlife. Well worth the $ and he comes HIGHLY recommended.

Our family of 5 toured the Manuel Antonio National Park with Roy as our guide. We found Roy to be professional, knowledgeable, unassuming and most importantly, a true lover of wildlife. With his telescope and laser pointer, Roy methodically pointed out things of interest hidden along the hike, including monkeys, spiders, frogs, crickets, bats, lizards, iguanas and 3-toed sloths.

We recently enjoyed a nature tour through Manuel Antonio with Roy. He has a calm, patient demeanor that makes you feel very comfortable as he guides you through the park. I noticed that other guides come to him for advice, etc. My kids are still commenting about his tour, and how nice it was for him to help them take... More

This was the second time we had hired Nature Specialists and the first time that Roy led our group. He was so knowledgable about the flora and fauna of Manual Antonio. Roy embodied the flexibility and willingness of Ticos to help you enjoy your tour and their beautiful country.

We would have missed so much had... More

He is calm gentle soul and is super patient taking time to teach us about what we were seeing. I actually wish we would have met him sooner and would have had... More
